In nitro? IMO, drag brake would create an expensive clutch bill...at the very least.It would also put a strain on your T servo. Don't do it.

Nope, would cost to much in the long run (brake pads etc). Just let off the throttle earlier.

thanks. I will remove the drag. I liked it because it made jumping smoother and it dipped the nose every time i let off the gas and helped it rotate off power in the turns. I dont understand the clutch thing. My brakes only drag when i let off the gas. Under even min throttle, it has no drag at all.
